In 2000 she married Etgar Wagner after a very short engagement. They waited to have children and Aiden was born in 2008. In 2007 Etgar and Misti opened up Spices Mediterranean Kitchen in Chandler. Spices was featured in Phoenix Magazine 1 of 50 “50 Best Dishes in the Valley” and “Best Mediterranean Food Restaurant in the Valley.” Spices won Best Gyro and Falafael in Phoenix New Times. Phoenix Jewish Magazine also feature them for Best Falafel in AZ. In May 2016 after 9 long years of owning and operating Spices the choice was made to not continue but rather move on and close down. It was a learning experience to say the least as well as a huge accomplishment. The food was amazing and of course Spices catered the agency holiday party so lots of our talent got to enjoy it as well!!!
